2017 Fair Parade

For nearly as long as there has been a fair, there has been a parade to kick things off. This collection of exhibitors, local businesses, and marching bands and so much more puts a smile on the faces of people lining the sidewalk.

The SEMO District Fair Parade will take place at 9:30 am on Saturday, September 9 to kick off fair week. This year’s theme is “Party with the Animals,” and you can bet it’ll be a blast!

Interested in participating in this year’s parade as band or other participant?


The parade route starts at Capaha Park at Broadway and West End Blvd, runs west along Broadway and then north on Kingshighway into the Arena Park entrance.

Bring a lawn chair and a friend, and have a great time kicking off the SEMO District Fair with the parade!
